Portobello Food Kitchen Bar is located on the ground floor of one of the modern apartment buildings in New Port. With floor to glass ceiling windows overlooking the Port River, this would be a nice place to be on a warm night in the Summer. The menu is Italian with tapas, pasta, risotto, pizza, seafood and grilled mains.
Today, I opted for one of their desserts, the Chocolate and Hazelnut Pudding. The presentation was slightly above average with a small pudding slice thrown in with other ingredients. The pudding was soft and moist, and really went well with the butterscotch sauce. For the $11.90 price tag, it was perhaps a bit small, but I guess you are paying for the area.
The staff were friendly and attentive, and the dessert came out fairly quickly. The atmosphere was relaxed with many customers at the time living local to the area. It’s a pity the New Port area never took off because I could see this restaurant really buzzing with activity. I will have to try some of their other dishes next time I’m in the area.
